Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.4 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [4.1.12] and later
Linux x86
Linux x86-64

Goal

Most Linux filesystems utilise an index node (inode) data structure to reference filesystem objects such as files and directories. Each filesystem object is allocated an inode within the inode table that is used to store it's various attributes and metadata. As additional files are created within a filesystem, inode usage increases and may possibly become exhausted. This document describes how to identify specific inode usage.
